Are rebates money back to the buyer or dealer? If Dodge is offering 6K rebate, can the dealer require all of that plus what they call, "money out of my Pocket"? If the 9k is mine, that is money out of my pocket.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Shelly LoCascio, Dealer Principal  at Irwin Lincoln Mercury Mazda Rebates are money back to the customer. Most customers use rebates as money down on their purchase. It sounds like you need $9000.00 to put towards your purchase so can take the $9000.00 "out of pocket and have the rebate sent to you OR can take $3000.00 "out of pocket" and have the dealer wait for the $6000.00 from the manufacturer. It sometimes takes 4-5 weeks for the manufacturer to send out the rebates so most customers sign them over to the dealer. New at Askpatty: Ask Patty is announcing CarBlabber.
